How Sweet the Name of Jesus

  • How Sweet the Name 1111:43

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds 
in a believer's ear! 
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, 
and drives away our fear.
 
It makes the wounded spirit whole 
and calms the troubled breast; 
'tis manna to the hungry soul, 
and to the weary, rest. 

O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend, 
my Prophet, Priest, and King, 
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, 
accept the praise I bring.
